Best Rasp / Fine Grater?

arielleeve | Jul 16, 201401:55 PM     5

I am on a hunt for a new rasp / fine grater. For a while we had the standard microplane one with the plastic handle and the skinny body (http://www.amazon.com/Microplane-4002...). My husband complained about that one because he said it was too narrow and he kept scraping his hands up on it (never happened to me, but he was being so whiny about it that I just decided it had to be replaced). Then we bought the plastic paddle one (http://www.amazon.com/Microplane-4210...), which somehow became so dull it is almost unusable -- I think it may have happened after grating ginger.

So I am thinking about maybe upgrading to one of their all-metal paddles ("Professional" line). http://www.amazon.com/Microplane-3800... . But I don't want it to end up being the same as the plastic one that got so dull. I see that SLT also sells one called "Elite" (http://www.surlatable.com/product/PRO...). I can't really figure out what is the difference between the plastic one, the Professional, or the Elite.

Anyone have any thoughts on which of the Microplanes are the best, or if there are others I have not looked into yet that you would recommend?
